Taste: 10/10. I highly recommend to everyone to try out the Penang Char Keow teow (CKT) with duck egg, at least once! It’s a popular Malaysian Local food, its very delicious and filling so after a day of walking around the mall, this would be my go to dinner. Otherwise, the Weng Kee BBQ pork noodles are also very good too! Most food here are based on local delicacies, and I highly recommend this place!

Beef noodles, roasted pork, and Char Kuey Teow are just three of the items you should not miss out on if you visit Lai Foong Beef Noodle Restaurant KL. These are the three most popular stalls that attract a large number of visitors, and there’s a good reason for it.

An elderly uncle prepares the Char Kuey Teow in an excellent manner. Each plate that emerges from that wok is packed with flavor and smokiness, as well as a crisp crunch from the beansprout and prawns. The usage of noodles, as it’s a combination of both yellow and flat noodles, is the distinction between his Char Kuey Teow and others.

Key Differentiators:

  • Serving noodle soup since 1956
  • Variety of choices
  • Great food

Customer’s Review:

One of the best beef noodles in downtown KL. Has a rich history and they’ve carried this till today .

Sisters Kopitiam is a long-standing favorite for people looking for pork-free alternatives of their favorite Malaysian street foods. The cafe chain has recently opened in Bukit Damansara as its latest location.

The ambience is a great deal nicer than the ones you’ll discover below, but with comfort comes a hefty premium – twice as much as what you’d pay in a regular hawker stall. Nonetheless, Sisters Kopitiam’s char kuey teow is still great – one of the greatest halal options in town.

Key Differentiators:

  • Reasonable price
  • Serves hearty, home-cooked Penang dishes
  • Muslim Friendly 

Customer’s Review:

The best kway teow! They have halal Chinese food to cater for Muslims. The taste is exactly the same!

The Sun Hin Long SS2 is one of the most well-known hawker stalls, with traditional coffee, tea, and a variety of hawker foods on offer.

Here, you’ll discover all you need, including basic chicken rice and economy rice, egg tarts, and char kuey teow. It’s also a wonderful spot to grab lunch, especially for office workers. However, the terrible parking may be a downer. The flavor is comparable to other char kuey teow dishes; it has a wonderful depth of smokiness, an excellent texture balance, and a reasonable price tag. It’s still quite delicious, though.

Key Differentiators:

  • Cozy atmosphere
  • Late-night dining
  • Good value

Customer’s Review:

This place has a good variety of food at reasonable prices.

Key ServicesChar Kway Teow Spot, Restaurant
Websitehttps://www.facebook.com/maliscorner71
AddressPlatinum Walk, 2, Jalan Langkawi, Setapak, 53100 Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

Mali’s began as a little roadside stand before developing into a full restaurant that occupies three store lots. Since 1997, the location has been in operation.

The restaurant, which offers only two types of food – nasi lemak and char kway teow, as well as beverages, and the idea of self-service to clients, continues to thrive and expand. The char kway teow has received numerous accolades, including being recognized as the greatest in KL by several blog articles.

The noodles are cooked in a rich brown sauce with sliced chilies and served in a large earthenware pot. It’s all due to the prawns, which the restaurant appears to be generous with, that the gravy has a smoky and fishy aftertaste.

Key Differentiators:

  • Serves best Nasi Lemak and Char Kuey Teow 
  • Fast Service
  • Cozy atmosphere

Customer’s Review:

One of the best Char Kuey Teow in town. It was, it still, & it will be the best in town. They managed to keep the quality of the food & the service is still quick & friendly. The only downside of this place is the crowd. You have to fight for table to be seated.
